  * * - Unknown me now which goalkeeper kits used in this matches.

  In 1985 Liverpool changed their kit manufacturer after a long association with Umbro. The new kit supplier was Adidas and the new kit was actually in use at the end of the 1984-85 season for the fateful Heysel European Cup Final. The first Adidas Liverpool kit was plain red with the three Adidas stripes in white on the shoulders and the sides of the shorts. The stripe effect also carried on through the V-neck of the shirt along with the end of the sleeves, Within the stripes of the shirt the Liver bird and the Adidas badge are repeated and can only be seen on close inspection, The club sponsors remained Crown Paints.

  This was not first in history club, when in one of match end season, Liverpool used kits next season. This was how in Friendly, as in official matches. For example, in matches:
  European Cup Final, vs Juventus (Turin, Italy), 29.05.1985.

  This two fragments with pre-seasons Liverpool team photos. Left image, Bob Bolder, Jan Molby & Bruce Grobbelaar, season 1985-86. Right image, Mike Hooper, Gary Gillespie & Bruce Grobbelaar, season 1986-87. Of this photos can understand, first, what may be yellow goalkeeper shirt, was two this seasons how home goalkeeper shirt. On this moment I not have official information, which color was home goalkeeper shirt, green or yellow color. Second, in left image, Liverpool goalkeepers dressings in goalkeeper shirt with CROWN PAINTS logo in one line. Why this interesting, simple first half season 1985-86, Liverpool goalkeepers used shirts with CROWN PAINTS logo in two lines.
  Else one, Liverpool goalkeeper shirt with CROWN PAINTS logo in two lines, was two variants. 1st variant Mike Hooper(left photo). 2nd variant Bruce Grobbelaar (left photo). Different in highly between Adidas logo-Liverbird L.F.C. and CROWN PAINTS logo.

  In season 1985-86, Liverpool starter in shirt CROWN PAINTS on two lines, but after New Year, the design CROWN PAINTS logo was change, written on one line. Why was change sponsor logo, I not know (may be with problems with TV).

  In season 1986-87, Liverpool again starter in shirt CROWN PAINTS on two lines. Written on two lines so it became larger (and easier to see on a TV screen), The shirt badges upon the replica shirts are an embossed material where as they would have been fully stitched upon the players issue shirts, a trend that has been seen through the majority of Liverpool shirt since.

  In Charity Shield (16.08.1986) match was used simple away goalkeeper shirt (photo in top left side page, Bruce Grobbelaar A G 1.1), in shirt not was special embroidery to this match. The special embroidery as was absent in matches Charity Shield 1971, 1974, 1979, 1980, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1992 & 1994. Liverpool also played in 60's Charity Shield matches, but and this matches used simple shirt, without special embroidery.


  In this match was else one interesting. If Liverpool field players was in shirt with sawed player number, Liverpool goalkeepers played in shirts with printed number with Adidas logo

  On a photo to see, how Bruce Grobbelaar was substituted on field to go Mike Hooper with player number 17 on shirt.

  How to distinguish a away shirt of a season 1985-86 from a away & third shirt of a seasons 1986-87 & 1987-88, very difficultly, only for design player number (below).

A G 1.1

  Once again there were two different types of sponsorship logos worn by the players; a double-lined version (shown above) and a single-lined version. The general consensus amongst collectors is that the single-lined sponsored version is slightly rarer; however I only seek one of the designs as the two shirts are otherwise identical. Genuine match worn shirts feature an embroidered Adidas badge (with two registered ® trademarks) and an embroidered Liverbird. No long sleeve replicas were ever released. If you cannot distinguish a player shirt from a replica or a semifinished item, consult to Michael Yip (
